Mike, I learn something every outing. The last day of the hunt I realized that I had severally under estimated the distance that the herd I was chasing, was actually traveling, from food to water. Now I believe that number to be 6 miles... about 3 times my original estimate.

Jared mentioned a square steel post in ground, with a heavy bracket on top to bolt the wood posts to. What about using a thick walled box, say 16" tall, anchored on, or in, the slab, with extra footings under those areas? Basically just a h/duty taller version of store bought versions? Or if you were lucky enough to find some square tubing with the inside diameter close to the dimensions of the timber?

Times are right...2200=10 pm. 90% of the time they come out between 9pm and midnight. The 3x4 started coming out at 7am so I worked him and still came up short. He's in the last pic, on the left

I don't envy you Charles. That's probably why I only have a single employee and a business I'm not willing to grow.

I've spent quite a few days bow hunting in the same area we went for rifle, where I set up the cameras, a total of 6 covering about 20 square miles (5 by 4). Guess I'm going to have to bribe Ashley to come out here and show me how it's done, because I got skunked, whooped, and beat up again! These deer are making me work for it, but sooner or later.....
anyways, here's some pics of what I was chasing. The first one is the one I had the best chance at. His name is Hustler. Just a typical 3x4:

Communes, Cankles, glocks???

So who's really samplin' the local crop?

Kentucky (Who has bourbon)?

Or Colorado which legalized the devil weed??

Just sayin...

You must excuse our "friend" from hippieville. Typical lefty, always projecting his misdeeds and bad habits onto the good people of this forum!

I was in HD a couple months back and they were just putting all of their Dewalt sds Max bits on clearance. I bought all of them (about 30) for 9.00-15.00 each...long 1/2" to 1" bits, plus spades and chisels tips. Couldn't pass it up!

That's a shame on the swampers. The radial and siped version is pretty quiet. That's what is on my 73 gmc but must be the first version (been on the truck 10 years) 36" on 16s.
Don must be thinking of the original tsl biased version... yeah they where horrible on the road

Oh, they eliminate the needle...makes sense

.. but they're actually boring the hub that's pressed into the main bearing...easy.. much softer steel

I guess I don't understand. The main wheel bearing/hub has a needle bearing inside that supports the axle stub, and the seal keeps moisture out of that bearing.... unless we're talking about a different front end.

Hmm good question. The support bearing inside is not very heavy.. that seal is pretty beafy...it might unintentionally provide some support, but more importantly keep moisture out. Ford also redid the seal on the axle tube side so you might want to go OEM on that one.

I love my neighborhood. Every Friday we meet next door for refreshments and the guys rotate smoker/grill duties... usually ribs or some kind of game. I make up for not cooking by bringing store bought dessert and/or refreshments.

My wife wants Idaho also, but the part that's on the border with Canada. Her sister has a 25acre spread there, on a lake... supposed to be pretty cheap but I'm guessing not very conservative (I haven't researched myself)

Nah. Because of the amount of cars he has, and how quickly he gathered them, tells me that he's not someone I would consider a friend, or someone I would buy anything from.

Truth be told, a neighbor bought a new ranger crew, then realized the new ones are longer than the one he had before. Lol
He is now the proud owner of an ar15.  :)

Got a smaller trailer, a 12 footer, to make hauling the ranger easier. My hitch is all the way down and the trailer is still nose up, way to low for where I go play.

Honestly don't see how this is a big deal. 120/hr in the 'tuck? Holy moly... I might be under charging.
Pull trans, 2 hrs, even with your custom work. Pull the pilot bearing out of the crankshaft (maybe I'm joking??), And slap it back together... total time 6ish hours...
